Besides the Carnival Destiny what other ships(Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, etc) are more port-intensive? Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the sea days, but right now I am more interested in visiting more ports. Thanks for your help.

Assuming that you are limiting your question to Caribbean cruises, Princess has two 7- day Southern Caribbean itineraries on Caribbean Princess that have one sea day each; and two 14-day Grand Caribbean itineraries on Sea Princess that have 2 sea days each.

I've found that ALL the cruise lines have certain cruises that stop in alot of ports, and certain ones that spend alot of their time on the sea. Shop around. Some of the smaller ships tend to go to ports the bigger ones can't go to so you see some different ports. Check those out too...Seabourn, Fred Olson, etc. Hope that helps.

Rick is correct here. If you want itineraries that al port intensive, then you should look for cruises that depart from San Jaun or the D.R. These are already close to the other ports and will have less sea days. Any ships leaving from Florida and NOT going to the Bahama's are going to burn at least one sea day in each direction getting to their featured ports.

The other thought is to try a European cruise. We are going on a 12 day cruise and I think there is only one day at sea on the whole trip.

Check out the Adventure of the Seas leaving from PR - I will (most likely) be going on this cruise in September. It is a 7 night cruise, with 5 southern caribbean ports - only one day at sea.

We've done 3 10 day itineraries on Princess 2 of them were 8 ports, 1 was 7 ports. We've done 2 14 day itineraries, 1 was 10 ports, 1 was 8 ports. Our 7 day on Princess out of San Juan was 5 ports. We're doing a 14 day this December that is 8 ports. We've done 2 Costa 7 day with 4 ports. As all have said, you'll normally have more ports on either a 10 or 14 day itinerary or a 7 day out of San Juan. Princess also has some out of Barbados. Have fun searching

Thanks for your help! Yes, I was mainly concerned with Caribbean cruises. I want to do a European cruise really bad, but that will be after I get done with school in two years.
